PUBG mobile hackers and cheaters face 10 year ban

The developers of PUBG Mobile announced a 10-year ban on those players found in violation of the PUBG Mobile gaming standards to ensure a fun and fair gaming experience for all players.

In September, the firm banned over 3,500 players who were found violating gaming standards.

The makers of PUBG were criticised for not taking action against those who hack and use cheats.

In a press note the firm said, “use of unauthorised third-party apps or hacks that provide unfair advantage to a player will be condemned with the ban.”

If users encounter a hacker or feel that you are being cheated, there is an option to report other gamers using the in-game reporting system that notifies the responsible team, who will ensure that stringent action is taken.

There is a new in-game Ban Notice section that can be accessed from the bottom right scrolling menu. The section gives additional information around the aggressive punishment and also includes a long list of players that have been banned from the game for a period of 10 years.

How to identify PUBG hackers?

They just won’t die: When a player is getting shot multiple times on spots like the head or the torso and is still not getting knocked off, if not killed, they are possibly using a hack to keep themselves from dying.

– See through wall and shoot: Wall hackers use patches and malware to tweak the properties of walls within the game. They can see through the walls or even shoot past them. If one finds a teammate gauging the exact location of an opponent while there are no footsteps heard and none seen on the mini-map, they are most likely to be hacking.

– Suspicious Killings: Hackers can mostly pull off a tough kill with any weapon. If you spot an opponent or a teammate taking a kill from a relatively far distance using a gun that usually evokes minimal damage with almost no attachments, then, it is only pragmatic to gauge that the player is a hacker.

– Speed: Hackers are able to move faster, and this gives them an edge while approaching new zones.
